For example, one person may feel anger and regret at the loss of a loved one while another may experience intense sadness. doi: 10.1016/S0926-6410(02)00268-9, Hoshi, Y., Huang, J., Kohri, S., Iguchi, Y., Naya, M., Okamoto, T., et al. Sci. Emot. doi: 10.1523/JNEUROSCI.2353-05.2006, Blumenfeld, R. S., and Ranganath, C. (2007). Therefore, different people may have different emotional experiences even when faced with similar circumstances. This lead to the experience of one’s self via overt behavior that is biased by a specific emotion stimulated by bodily changes that underlie psychological/physiological states. The research that exists is correlational in nature. 12, 1–47. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), emotion is defined as “a complex reaction pattern, involving experiential, behavioral and physiological elements.” Emotions are how individuals deal with matters or situations they find personally significant. Cogn. In fact, emotions have been observed in animals by researchers for several years, suggesting that they’re pivotal to survival in other species as well. Sci. We can be at the heights of joy or in the depths of despair or. FIGURE 2. Types of Emotions (1999). 7, 278–285. In fact, there is substantial evidence for seven universal emotions that are each associated with distinct facial expressions. 9, 242–249. 8, 24–25. Hence, these findings indicate that EEG alpha asymmetry may be used to assess “approach” (positive valence) vs. “withdrawal” (negative valence) motivational processes and/or emotional responses during learning.

J., Gratch, J. Biol. Emotional experiences are ubiquitous in nature and important and perhaps even critical in academic settings, as emotion modulates virtually every aspect of cognition. Primary emotional processing for homeostatic, sensory and emotional affects facilitate secondary learning and memory processing via the “SEEKING” system that promotes survival and reproductive success (bottom-up instinctual influences). 7:170. doi: 10.3389/fnbeh.2013.00170, Heinzel, A., Bermpohl, F., Niese, R., Pfennig, A., Pascual-Leone, A., Schlaug, G., et al. Emotion 7, 89–102. Front. 265, 45–55. Consistent findings were reported for recognition tasks investigated by fMRI where the left PFC-hippocampal network appeared to support successful memory encoding for neutral and negative non-arousing words. It has also been suggested that functional differences in the amygdala could serve as a biomarker to differentiate individuals suffering from bipolar disorder from those suffering from major depressive disorder (Fournier, Keener, Almeida, Kronhaus, & Phillips, 2013). Persistent activity in the prefrontal cortex during working memory. Cereb. This classification is known as a wheel of emotions and can be compared to a color wheel in that certain emotions mixed together can create new complex emotions. This theory, developed by Stanley Schachter and Jerome E. Singer, introduces the element of reasoning into the process of emotion. Personality, mood, and cognitive processing of emotional information: three conceptual frameworks. Neuron 35, 989–996.

Cogn. All emotions begin with a subjective experience, also referred to as a stimulus, but what does that mean? Cambridge: Blackwell. Subjects were instructed to rate each stimulus as animate or inanimate and common or uncommon. 21, 1819–1828. Limbic-Cortical Dysregulation. 54, 107–143. Zajonc asserted that some emotions occur separately from or prior to our cognitive interpretation of them, such as feeling fear in response to an unexpected loud sound (Zajonc, 1998). • To assess the anxiety in primigravida mothers during first stage of labor in e, Aggressive and Dominating women and the goddess culture of matriarchy, Emotional abuse of children is a subtype of maltreatment and is very common in the 21 st century. Intrinsic motivation, curiosity, and learning: theory and applications in educational technologies. Neurosci. Neuroimage 18, 439–447. 16, 6–8. The James-Lange theory asserts that emotions arise as a function of physiological arousal. His research into the neuroscience of emotion has demonstrated the amygdala’s primary role in fear (Cunha, Monfils, & LeDoux, 2010; LeDoux 1996, 2002). Trends Cogn. Cereb. More importantly, these studies (fear-related learning) strongly suggest that the amygdala’s involvement in emotional processing strengthens the memory network by modulating memory consolidation; thus, emotional content is remembered better than neutral content. Both the amygdala and hippocampus were rigorously activated during recollection compared to familiarity recognition, whereas no differences were found in the entorhinal cortex for either recollection or familiarity recognition. In a study of emotional self-generation using PET noted that the insular cortex, secondary somatosensory cortex, and hypothalamus, as well as the cingulate cortex and nuclei in the brainstem’s tegmentum, including PAG, parabrachial nucleus, and substantia nigra maintained current homeostasis by generating regulatory signals (Damasio et al., 2000).
